PRP Hair Restoration is a popular hair treatment for both men and women experiencing hair loss, thinning hair, or receding hairlines. PRP treatments are noninvasive, effective, and naturally restore hair without the scarring associated with other hair loss treatments. For years, physicians have been using PRP therapy to accelerate injury healing.
Because PRP is made from your own blood, it is completely safe to reintroduce to your body. Our blood is made of two main components: red blood cells and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors.
Androgenic alopecia (AGA)is the most common form of hair loss, affecting up to 50% of men and 21 million women in the United States alone. Androgenic alopecia is typically influenced by genetics but hair loss and thinning can also result from stress, illness, medication, hormonal changes, and environmental factors. For the many millions of people struggling with hair changes, PRP Hair Restoration provides a safe, non-surgical solution. The benefits include:
How does PRP Hair Restoration work?
PRP Therapy works by activating the body’s growth factors, found in your platelets, to promote healing and rejuvenation. These growth factors are harvested from a simple blood sample which is then placed in a centrifuge from which the patelet-rich serum is collected. For PRP Hair Restoration, we inject that serum directly into the scalp. The scalp absorbs the PRP, allowing the growth factors to stimulate and restore your natural hair growth. The appearance of hair loss is improved and thinning hair is fortified with stronger, thicker, healthier hair.
Will PRP Hair Restoration work for me?
Anyone experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP treatments, but those with early hair loss tend to respond best. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair thinning that typically occurs along the top of the head. In women, this might look like a widening part with normal hair thickness at the back of the head.
For best results, consistency is key. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first four months, and then every three to six months thereafter, depending on the individual patient’s response and results. Following this protocol, anticipated results can first be seen within two to three months. It’s important to keep in mind that PRP can, and should, be a part of a multifaceted program to treat hair thinning and loss.
